/pre-and john harbaugh era. they faced a desperate opponent. a career high and, down 6-0 at the half. baltimore led 7-6, but then someone hit the snooze. what go, off his back foot, throws into double coverage. near-receptions kept coming. fourth down, last chance. flacco was unable to find a receiver. four turnovers on the road, a recipe for a miserable meal.

>> the ravens loss to the bengals today and it cannot stop anybody. what did surprise was the complete regression of the offense that we sought in preseason. playing worse in week 2, those are real problems.
6:22 pm
the offense was barely better than baltimore. bengals in the red dawn, carson palmer on the third down, the past should have been picked up by the 1 landrieu. -- dwon landrey. bolton had a nice tackle, but by the way. he flat out dropped it. that could have been a touchdown or a field goal, at the very least. joe flacco and had 23 yards passing in the first half. 19 of them were to todd heath. he steps into the and throw and delivers the strike to derrick mason. in the third quarter, 9-7
